Thanks SO much for all your help. I cannot say enough about how great you and Oceanside Gifts have been! We will most definitely make sure to include a stop to your store this coming summer; we would love to thank you personally! Deb, you have been nothing short of awesome!! 😉

See you soon!


Another wonderful note from a happy customer!

“I first off wanted to thank you for having a great selection of products in which to choose from. I am the broadcaster from California spending the summer in the Pacific Northwest and came to Victoria twice to play the HarbourCats this summer. I came to your store twice during outrtravels and I was impressed with your customer service and selection of unique products.

Thank you so much for your location and merchandise. It is so nice to meet people during my travels, especially ones that I have good conversations with.”


Both these reviews gave us 5 stars on Yelp! Thank you Karen and Maureen – it was our pleasure to be of service!

“This is a great store. Over the Christmas holidays my daughter was looking for a Canada beanie to bring back to Los Angeles for a friend. We found two great beanies at this store at great prices too.”


“Debra, the owner, went above and beyond the call of duty.  I recently visited Victoria and discovered that some of the gifts I purchased did not make it home.  Debra was very accommodating, even sending me photos to insure that I received the correct items and then sent them the very same day. Additionally the store has a wide variety of quality souvenirs at reasonable prices.”


Thank you very much Debra for your kind assistance in providing material that I will use to promote the Rotary Zone meeting in Victoria. I will be handing out the key rings in California in January to advertise the conference and also Victoria.

Sincerely, Michael


Thank you so much for your personal and efficient service.  I know my sister will enjoy the gift!


I was up from Seattle and in your store a couple weeks ago trying to replace a lost earring from Silver Forrest jewelry, and you kindly informed me that
they would send me a replacement for free.  They did indeed – they actually sent me another pair when I was only expecting one.  I appreciate your candor in telling me about their great service.  If you also remember, I bought a different pair from your store as well 🙂

Thank you again for your thoughtfulness because I know you didn”t need to tell me about their service.  It is refreshing to encounter honesty every now
and then.  I will definitely come back to your shop next time I am in Victoria.

Sincerely, Betsy

Thanks again Deb. Great service!
I will think of you every time I take jewelry out of my beautiful bowl that sits on my dresser. My only souvenir from my trip.


Hi Deb.
Thankyou very much for all of your assistance during the deciding and purchase of these items it has been greatly apreciated.
We will be sure to come through you for any further purchases.

Thanx, Janelle and Cheryl

Thanks Deb.
I forgot to mention that I love your new logo!!
You ARE the heart of the Inner harbour.


I was certainly delighted with the note cards you had picked out for us. They were beautiful. Thank you.

Good morning Deb,
Just want to tell you how much we appreciate your help. You are easy to talk to, and willing to assist in any way. We placed our order and we received it in the same week. That’s faster than some companies that we have dealt with before. I also want to tell you that Marlese is a very nice person. She provided good service at your store, and very courteous when I spoke to her on the phone. We are very pleased with your business and how you handle everything.

Thank you so much for being patient and taking the time to assist us.

Sincerely,  Grace
